Hokudaisai Photo Exibition -2012
Dear International Students, this year HUISA would like to continue a good tradition and give a chance to more students participate in the International Food festival. We will have a photo exhibition to let the visitors know more about the world and our countries.
If you were not gifted with cooking skills this year again you have a chance to introduce your country through the pictures!
What pictures do we look for?
First of all, pictures which can represent your own country – since no one know it better than you. It doesn’t have to be picture of any famous place. It can be pictures of people, food or anything you which may show unknown sides of your home to the visitors. It may be also pictures taken in Japan, if you think that place, people or event are somehow connected to your country.
This year, following frequent requests we will also accept pictures made in Japan. If you have some original picture you made during your stay at Japan and you think they may be interesting to the visitors of IFF please send it to us.
*The pictures participated in the exhibition last year you can see on the wall in the ISC activities room.
Note(1): we will not accept pictures which contains violence, political agitation, may be offensive to other countries.
Note(2): Pictures should be taken by the participant himself.

Also, in case there are too many applicants the number of pictures from one student to be exhibited may be reduced to 1. If you are submitting 2 photos please mark with “1” the photo you want to be exhibited for sure and the “2” the complementary one. If photos are not marked, we keep the right to decide the main photo by ourselves.
